Community Garden Day


It was a beautiful March morning, a perfect day for planting new native plants in our teaching, community garden. Two teen groups from Green Valley Project and Troop 1121 from Scouts BSA, joined together to participate in a day of planting, weeding and most importantly gathering together in community. 

Before we began planting for the day, teens listened to the story behind the garden and how it's intended to be a communal endeavor for all the creatures inhabiting our picturesque Ojai neighborhood. This garden holds a significant role in echoing the themes emphasized in Humane Education for Youth (HEY) programs at HSVC. The theme of the day was definitely “Community”. Fostering a community of youth that are advocates for people, animals and the environment is integral to the principles of Humane Education pedagogy.


Moreover the garden is also a symbol of gratitude and a place of gathering. It was inspiring to see our local teens wanting to be of service. I am enamored by your dedication to be helpers. A huge thank you to everyone involved!

Next time you visit the Humane Society of Ventura County, don’t miss out on visiting the garden. It’s located by the gravel lot on Bryant Street. If you would like more information about Humane Education or the garden, please contact me, Angie Sagliani, at [email protected].
